Aung Myint (not his real name) a prisoner of the Kachin Independence Army who picked him up in the jungle after he had fled his unit of the Burmese Army. He was 13 when he was forced into the Burmese Army and sent to the frontline in Kachin State. 'I was fearful for my life.' He was routinely beaten by his section commander. After a day walking through the forest he was arrested by the Kachin Independence army and taken prisoner. He is scared to go home because he says he will be arrested.
